2001Toyota Rav4L 1AZ FSE won't start test crank and cam sensor good high pressure pump good no pulse from the injecter wire using pulse light could you tell what's wrong.


No pulse means computer is not getting something it wants. Do you have spark at plugs? Correct fuel pressure? Security system needs reset?

Tank air pressure


Hi Chris...
Normally you set the air first.... but it can be done either way, just be sure that you have about 1/4 of your tank an air cushion, this stops the pump from cycling on and off to fast

Culligan AC-30 Tank not Filling and Recharge only produces minimal water.


You should change filters and membrane and then proceed. Replace both filters not one. You mat to buy new RO unit that you can find filters on line ie store (less than you are going to pay for Culligan) PROCEDURE FOR RECHARGING REVERSE OSMOSIS BLADDER TANK WITH AIR
When you turn on the faucet you notice low water pressure from the storage tank and only a quick burst of water come out of the system, and it dies down to trickles. Is the tank defective, i.e., bladder has hole and not functioning properly? Perhaps.

If you have the above problem and the tank is heavy (full), then try to relief the pressure from the air valve on the tank side. Is water coming out? If the answer is yes, then the bladder has hole and is defective, and tank replacement is due. If air comes out then it is possible that the air needs to be recharged.

Notes on bladder tank, please continue reading:

RO Tank useful life is 5-7 years. If the tank has been serving you for that long it is possible that the bladder had a hole and that tank replacement is due. If the tank is not that old, it is worth it to evaluate it for air pressure. In an empty tank, air pressure should be 7-10 psi. In a full/heavy tank, air pressure should be 30-40 psi. To be accurate, air pressure should be 2/3 of incoming water pressure. When the tank is full, and if feed water pressure to the RO system is 60 psi, then a full tank should have 40 psi. The RO tank has a bladder inside, and this bladder separates air from water. On the lower side of the tank is the air valve which is connected to the compressed air chamber. The top water inlet/outlet port (where the tank valve is mounted) is connected to the pure water chamber. So, when you turn on the faucet, the compressed air would squeeze or compress the bladder to force the water out of the tank.

You do not want to believe the tank is useless and want to do extra testing? If your answer is yes, please continue reading.

TOOLS NEEDED FOR TESTING:

1. An air compressor or air pump (like a bicycle tire air pump)

2. An air pressure gauge that is able to read less than 10 psi, and

3. Adjustable wrench.

STEPS:

1. Shut off the water supply to the RO system

2. Turn on the faucet to allow water to run until it stops.

3. Check to see if there is still water in the storage tank by lifting the tank. If the tank feels heavy, that means you need to recharge the tank and continue the following steps. If the tank feels light, that means you don't need to charge your storage tank at this moment.

4. Locate the air valve on the side of the tank. It looks like the air valve on tires.

5. Use air compressor or air pump to pump air into the tank. Keep the faucet on while pumping air, so that all water inside the tank can be purged out.

6. After all water has been drained from the tank, use an air pressure gauge to check the tank pressure.

7. The tank should have 7 psi of pressure when it's empty. Add or purge air if necessary.

8. Turn the feed water valve back on, and turn off the faucet to allow refilling of the tank.

9. finished.

What if the tank does not hold pressure and you see the same problem again? Bladder is out and you need to replace the tank.

My current water tank was installed 12 years ago With Bladder. 1 hp motor. 80 gals. Water Pressure is consistantly low. When reset to 40-50 lbs, it drops shortly after back to thirty lbs in the house....


If I understand you, this is a water well. For pressure to drop, water must be going somewhere. If you see no leak in the tank, that is not the problem.
Check all outlets, faucets, toilets, showers, outside faucets, etc. If you see no leaks and the pressure is still dropping, there is a check valve either before the pump or in the well and this could be leaking back. Either way, the pressure should drop to zero unless the pump comes back on.

The engine power pulses at higher RPM and sometimes the engine stalls after starting. The problem is intermittent and seems like it might be fuel pump related.


Your going to receive answers about electronic issues and spark plug wires and dirty injectors, but I would start with a fuel pressure test because of the way you worded your problem, (OK, at idle, but when a demand of fuel needed, pulsing) Probably a fuel pump problem if dry gas can't clear it up.

Does the gas tank need to be high on the motor or can it **** from a lower source?


Your water pump is gravity feed type, however you can add a vacuum/pressure pulse type pump. Look here : http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/4/22/423/22375/ITEM/Mikuni-Pulse-Fuel-Pump.aspx

This is just an example, there are many styles and capacities of pulse pump. Look on ebay. You will need to be creative and find an way to tap into the crankcase system. Some engines that use pulse pump will get vacuum / pressure from the valve cover area. The pump works with the natural pressure / vacuum created in the crankcase by piston movement. Good luck

I have a Kenmore Refrigerator: Model Number 106.50254001, Purchased 1-24-2001. It has a water and ice dispenser on the front. I purchased a Rainsoft Water Softening system, with a Reverse Osmosis System...


The water pump probaply is switch on by a flow switch. So the solution is to install a pressure tank after pump so to have stable pressure and not a pulsing one.

What is advantage of two tubes over one?


see friend .
we have two tubes .
1 one is for pumping the air so bag fills up.
2second contains the tube for telling pulse rate .
it is easy as we have systolic as well as dystolic pressure.
through two tubes we can have better reading.
